Work Space - Final

 There have been many reasons why I never posted pictures of the final stage of my basement work room. The most important reason is that I've never felt like it was truly finished. It was usable, but I never felt comfortable in the room.

Today I finally got myself into gear and rearranged all of the furniture. There are still some minor things I'd love to do, such as better organize my art supplies, and put up some art on the walls, but for now I'm happy with how the room feels.

A note on the colour of the walls. I know a few people were surprised that I went so dark, but there's a reason why I chose that colour. I've used that shade of blue or one similar for every self promotional logo and design I've ever done. If you're reading my blog from the actual site ( you'll see that it is also a very similar colour. It's been my favourite colour since I was a child and it's one that I always find both relaxing and inspiring.

I'm feeling really great about this project, even though it took months longer to complete than I intended. Finally I have a place to get my work done, whether its drawing, painting, crafting, writing, designing, reading, or whatevering. After four years of living here, this place finally feels like home.

Forget how the room used to look? Check out day 1day 3, day 4, and day 5 of the transformation.
